Nearby golf courses


There are 11 golf courses waiting to test Fuengirolas golf tourists. However, the stars of the show for the perspective of residing at La Zambra can only be Mijas Golf, home to the internationally acclaimed Los Lagos and Los Olivos.


The Los Lagos golf course is  one of the best golf courses on the Costa del Sol. At 7200 yards it is a beautifully designed championship style golf course consisting of vast rolling and  tightly cut fairways leading to huge contoured greens defended by more than 70 sand traps and no less than 9 lakes!

The golf course is epic. From the back tees it is long. To get the best out of Los Lagos I urge you to play from the tee box that allows you to reach the par four holes in 2 shots. Then you will be immersed in the golfing experience that Robert Trent Jones envisaged when he penned this great layout.


The condition of Los Lagos is always exemplary. With 10 minute intervals between tee times the pace of pay is always good and the course never feels crowded.


The practice facilities are a 90 second stroll from the Hotel lobby, the driving range, putting green and short game area centrally located between both of the first tees making access to the golf course as easy as it can be!



Los Olivos is a perfect foil to Los Lagos. With smaller, elevated greens matched with  slender fairways often lined by ancient, gnarled Olive trees, Los Olivos offers a very different but equally satisfying golf experience. Again Trent Jones has thoughtfully designed each hole to offer “easy bogey, hard par” which is friendly towards handicap golfers while an exquisite test for elite players.
